Stéphanie Laforce

Multimedia artist and electroacoustic composer, Stéphanie creates her own worlds. She builds interactive sound interfaces. Her musical production embraces compositions with varied and specific universes through their poetry and social commitment. From concerts to exhibitions, from indoor/outdoor installations-interventions to performances, she decompartmentalizes practices through choices of representation that combine poetry, history and physical presence. Her approach attempts to answer an essential question, the place of the human in a mechanical world.


L’écoute verticale, 2012, 05’ 29’’

This little piece is based on a storm of emotions felt after the death of the Belgian electroacoustic composer and a friend Stephan Dunkelman. This storm creates  a vibrating, unbalanced and an oscillating energy that the act of composition tries to organize. This piece questions the intertwined connections between the creative power of life and it’s ending. Some fragments of Stephan’s piece « Metharcana » which strongly made a mark when I first discovered Electroacoustic music in 1998 were used as well. The voice and the sound of breathing make this piece intimate and personal. The title refers to a quote by Stéphan "So that between Heaven and Earth the listening is vertical...". Carpe Diem.
